Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am suffering from muscle twitches, joint pain, and extreme body weakness for over three to four months. My skin has become dry. My finger knuckles have got black pigmentation. My neurologist tells me that my reflexes are normal. I have a history of masturbation from my teenage and I also have the problem of excessive nightfall. Does this problem occur due to any potassium or magnesium deficiency? Or due to any hormonal problem like testosterone or HGH deficiency? My thyroid profile is normal. My brain MRI, EEG, and BP are normal too. I am 5'10" tall and my weight is 174.16 Ibs. I am currently taking tablet Remylin D but there is no improvement. I am also taking Ayurveda remedies for nightfall. Please help to improve my condition.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand from your complaints and history, the condition is at the level of functional or metabolic derangement. All your laboratory reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) indicate that you are structurally normal. The functional aspect of body needs to be corrected with few medicaments and diet regimen. Before that please answer few questions for better treatment plan. What is your age? Is there any dryness of mouth, weakness, tiredness or giddiness? Do you take any regular medication?

By saying twitches do you mean it as uncontrolled jerky movements of body or a part of body or eyebrows? Is it continuous? Or does it get aggravate in particular time, with particular food or activity or when anxious? What makes you feel relieved such as rest or hot water? Apart from that, is there any gas formation in stomach and a bloatedness, farting or belching? Do you feel any burning sensation in stomach or chest or eyes or palms and sole? Do you have vomiting sensation?

How many times you open your bowel daily? Is the stool regular or hard like constipation? Is there any pain in opening bowels? Is there any itch or blood? How is your appetite? Can you tolerate if the food is delayed? Can take enough food or just a little will satisfy your hunger? Did you get any burning sensation after voiding? What is the color of your urine? How is your sleep? Disturbed or a good one? Do you sleep in daytime? Are you working late night? Give a brief note about your daily routine.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 25 years old. Muscle automatically jumps which is more after physical activity. It is continuous and happens anytime. I have some burping but no vomiting. I do not have dryness of mouth but extreme muscle weakness is present. My hunger and bowel are normal. My urine is light yellow in color and I have occasional burning sensation. I feel my sleep is good and normal. But, I do not feel fresh in the morning. There is an extreme tiredness and body ache. I searched on the internet, my symptoms are quite similar to adrenal fatigue. Kindly tell me what may be the cause of my problem.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms are basically because of improper assimilation of essential nutrients.The cause may be linked to erroneous food habits, excessive sexual intercourse or masturbation, bad daily regimen and unhealthy sleep habits. Here is a prescription for you. Follow it for the next 15 days.

  • Ashtavarga Kashaya and Sukumara Kashaya, each 1/2 tbsp (in total 1 tbsp) mix with 4 tbsp of boiled and cooled water and taken morning and night before food.
  • Dhanvantari vati - Two tablets morning and night along with the above medicine.

Avoid foods that increase gas formation such as potato, cauliflower, cabbage, chickpea, sprout, green leafy vegetables, curds, refrigerated food, hot and spicy food, junk food like chats, oily and fried food, and aerated drinks. Habits to avoid are drinking alcohol, smoking, sleeping during the daytime and late at night awake, masturbating, and heavy weight lifting in the gym. Take foods like onion, garlic, green gram dal, old raw rice, buttermilk, milk, clarified butter, and sleep early by 10.30 PM and get up early at least by 6:00 AM.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
